From filling out paperwork to walking out the door, a piercing takes 20-30 minutes on average. If the piercing in question is particularly complex or you're getting multiple piercings in one visit, the process can take up to 45 minutes.

How old do I have to be to get a piercing?

You need to be 18 years of age (legal adult) to get any kind of piercing without the consent of your parent and/or legal guardian. If you are under the age of 18, you must be accompanied by your parent and/or legal guardian. For more information, read up on our guidelines for minors.

I've been pierced before, can I get a new one in the same spot?

That depends on the current state of the location in question. We suggest coming in to talk with one of our piercers to see if the area is still viable as a piercing site.

Can I go swimming after I get my piercing?

You want to avoid submerging your fresh piercing for the first 6-8 weeks as it's an open wound during that time. Whether you're at the beach or in a pool, there are a variety of unknown bacteria and/or chemicals present in the water that are unsafe to introduce to the affected area.

I play contact sports, can I still get a piercing?

Fresh piercings require a steady and stable environment to promote healing. Contact sports carry a risk of harm to the wound site, so we typically suggest you wait until off-season to get anything done.

Do you pierce infants?

No, we don't. There are a variety of reasons and factors that we took into account when we made the decision to refuse the piercing of infants. For more information, please read up on piercing infants on our website.

Do you do the smiley/snake eyes/scoop/web piercing?

No, we do not. Any piercing that can cause harmful or detrimental effects to the body are not performed by our piercers.

Does it hurt?

How much pain is experienced depends on the piercing as well as the pain tolerance of the client. Heat and pressure are generally the sensations most commonly described followed by tenderness and a bruise-like feeling for a day or two after the initial piercing.

Is your jewelry real?

Our jewelry is made of various implant-rated materials. A high-polish finish is used on all of our pieces, and they are all of internally threaded or threadless design.

Can I use my own jewelry?

Any jewelry brought in by a client must first be inspected by a member of our team to determine its suitability for use in a fresh piercing. We have specific criteria that must be met for any jewelry to be used. It must be made of implant-rated materials; it must have a high-polish finish. There can be no karat stamps present on any part of the jewelry that passes into the body, and it must be internally threaded or of a threadless design.

Is it infected?

If you have urgent concerns over the health and state of your piercing, please come see us immediately at our shop in The Mall At Wellington Green on the first floor across from Macy's.

Is this bump a keloid?

If you have urgent concerns over the health and state of your piercing, please come see us immediately at our shop in The Mall At Wellington Green on the first floor across from Macy's.

I have a surgery/MRI coming up, can I leave my piercing in?

Our jewelry is MRI-friendly and implant-rated, so it should not present any problems during such tests. If you are in need, we can provide you a copy of the Mill Test Report (otherwise known as a Mill Certificate) to show to the medical technician. If, for whatever reason, the jewelry must be removed, we are happy to assist. We also carry clear retainers made of both BioPlast and tempered, shatterproof glass to maintain the presence of your piercing during test, surgeries, and/or recoveries.

How do I clean my new piercing?

For most body and facial piercings, we recommend using a sterile saline spray to flush and irrigate the wound site of any contaminants while it is healing. Oral piercings require rinsing with a non-alcohol based mouthwash. For more information on the aftercare of your new piercing, check out general aftercare.

Where in The Mall at Wellington Green are you located?

We were previously on the first floor across from F.Y.E. and Champs, but we are now on the first floor directly in front of Macy's.

Why do I need to come in for a check up?

We ask clients to come in roughly two weeks post-piercing, so we can check how their primary healing is going. After two weeks, most of the initial swelling is reduced, and you are typically in need of a downsize in the length of your post. A fitted post is very much crucial to the health and stability of your healing piercing. When a client comes in for a shorter post, it is typically sold for a discounted price.
